Vent front cap on motorhome

Okay so we all know how hot it can get above the windshield on class A Motorhome’s has anyone ever put a small roof vent or attic vent to let the heat out or is this a no no? Or hey maybe some brands do it already.

I would think you'd be introducing a major leak point. The best thing you can do is insulate the front cap with batt insulation.

When I removed the old TV and rebuilt the cabinet I stuffed that space with fiberglass insulation before closing it up!
